    recently found out my new red cherry shrimp is most likely pregnant. there are ember tetras in the tank with it along with another shrimp and snail. would the ember tetras go for the baby shrimp? would java moss help?

    i forgot to mention, the ember tetras are very small. some are about the length of maybe a dime or a penny now.

    Tetras (in fact most fish) will try to eat shrimplets. Like plants will give the baby shrimp a fighting change, and the thicker the better (this will give them a place to hide out of reach of your tetras).
